    How intelligent are we when we start our statements "its probably, we think most likely, therefore we know.." The most unintelligible debate ever. Everyone shows and knows how a Natural Novel Virus can be most probably made. How about a targeted multi-technology virus...just for Debate...what mutli-technologies would it most likely and probably need.. Theories aside wheres the debate. Or is this the Buck Roger's scenario?
